7.SS, s.Pz.Kp. 223, Pz.Abt. 213, Pz.Jg.Abt 657, 13éme Dragons & FFI B1BIS tanks
Markings for 23 specific vehicles!
Starting with 5 Prinz Eugen tanks "11", "21", "22", "23" & "33" - all standard flamethrower version, seen in Yugoslavia. No problem as there is already a conversion set (or two) available in the market.
Next comes Balkan front vehicles "125", "224" & "114", also flamethrowers. The latter two sporting interesting logos on the side of the hulls. "224" & "114" were not the usual heavily converted flame tanks like the rest, as the only visible changes were the simple replacement of the 75mm gun in the front with a flame gun (the mantle remained), and relocation of the antenna (to a German type) to the hull front.
Channel Island Char B1bis, featuring both early Panzer grey schemes and latter 3 tone camouflages. The black with white outlined turret number styling are unique to this battalion. One can also notice the various alterations made to the standard B1bis tank: hatched smaller turret; added compartment on the right side of the driver's compartment; relocated antenna. And so forth.
Arnhem tanks are another unique breed of altered B1Bis, all flame tanks and seldom marked, except for "812" which is featured in the set. Besides the usual full flame-thrower alteration with the extended rear, one unique feature is the removal of the small turret, replaced by a two-piece hatch (Panzer IV type?).
Though not featured in the instructions, included are letters and balkankruez for the 10.5 cm leichte feldhaubitze (light howitzer) 18/3. Just in case there a you gamed for a heavy scratch-conversion project!
Recaptured vehicles are the next special feature of this set. Seen during the liberation of France, 13éme Dragons paraded through the streets with their Char B1bis, probably all were "reconfiscated" from their previous captors. Renamed, renumbered, re-marked and repainted, this time with olive drab instead of the complicated schemes that once adorned the vehicles.
Gun tank "13", the last feature of this set, was still in Panzer grey when it was recaptured from German hands by FFI (free French partisans). Boldly marked so that it would not be misidentified by the allied forces, the tank paraded through the streets of Paris to celebrate the end of German occupation.
